Then the world of modding was revealed to me.

Google was my friend. I was searching around for info on some cars I was interested in buying and found this site. Needless to say I ended up with a Focus.

I was a member of an SHO forum, so when I bought the focus I switched SHO with Focus and BOOM found it.

Google, 'natch! (Had the fun of being a Google beta tester back in 1999...it's my favorite web tool.)
08-19-2009, 04:06 AM
I Googled "Focus alloy wheels". The rest is history.....
08-19-2009, 04:08 AM
Googled "Ford Focus Forum"
I've been lurking a while, but I decided to join up when someone posted something about the Shell Eco challenge.
08-19-2009, 07:40 AM
Google, as well.

Saw the sticker on QuikSilvr's car that said FocusFanatics.com a couple of years ago but never really bothered with joining until February of this year. I worked in the area he lives in so I saw that sticker just about every day. Joined the other Focus site about a year and a half ago but never bothered posting there lol. Came here and it's been an addiction for me ever since then....
08-19-2009, 07:47 AM
saw the focus fanatic magazine, GOOGLED focus central for parts and focus fanatic site came up, and here I am.

Google I was researching cars and maintence issues and main problems and found this site.
08-19-2009, 11:44 AM
I was on Yahoo when I tried looking for a body kit. Actually made an account back in Jan of 05 when I was still in Jr High but forgot to get back on. Found it again trying to find an intake.

I was told about it from a Focus friend right after I bought my Focus.
08-19-2009, 12:43 PM
Was looking through Facebook groups and Saw Focus Fanatics, then joined the website.
08-19-2009, 12:44 PM
I was referred here from somebody on either ranger-forums.com or offroadrangers.com
08-19-2009, 01:14 PM
i was on cardomain.com (great site, btw) trying to find ideas on what to do with my focus sedan, saw the "focusfanatics.com" windshield sticker on a black zx3, the rest was history. i was glad i came upon a website, filled with 1000's of members with the same kind of ride, talking about the same thing on what they can do with a focus. it's been 2 years since ive joined and because of it, it made me appreciate the ford focus more than most people would.

I found it from the other site as I was registered over there first. I lurked for awhile made a few posts under my old username, didn't log in for a while, forgot about the site, had a problem with my '03, couldn't remember my old username, made a new account using my current name, got Blue Mod Status in less than a year, Then Red Mod Status shortly after and the rest has been history.
08-19-2009, 04:57 PM
Friend told me when I got my Focus. He didn't own one, but told me that a guy he knew who owned one went to this site a lot, and that it was really cool and could help me a lot. He was right.
08-19-2009, 05:00 PM
When I bought my first focus, I was having a problem finding out how to replace the water pump, and when I googled it, there happened to be a thread on here about it at the time.
Now, 3 focus's later and over a year older. I'm hopelessly addicted. [thumb]
08-19-2009, 06:00 PM
googled for a forum after I got mine
08-19-2009, 10:02 PM
I googled Focus SVT after buying mine.
08-19-2009, 10:09 PM
I bought my car mid-end of 03 ... was driving around town one night ... little cruise ... ran into some Fofos going to a fofo meet ... decided to follow and then just was told about the site.
Joined in 03 ... but didn't really do much til about mid 05 ... College took most time.
Since then ... haven't gotten away and very much enjoy the people I talk to and meet who have a passion for the Fofo.
08-19-2009, 10:13 PM
Google: "Focus Forums" lol
Day I bought my Foci :)
08-19-2009, 10:38 PM

By Random Encounter.
08-19-2009, 11:12 PM
like many others I started to google stuff about the svt right before i bought it, fell across this site read a TON and then decided to buy the svt. Shortly after I got the car I joined up, and have been hooked ever since. Maybe a mod can add a poll to this??? maybe some choices like: internet search; referral; magazine; etc.
08-19-2009, 11:42 PM
A friend of mine derek had the fofo for about six months before me. He bought it cuz he crashed his jetta. It was love at first site. Can with complete sound system, intake, 18" RS rims and a magna flow resonater lol. He ended up being sent to Iraq sadly and told me he'd sell me the foci before his shipping date. Over the past year I've been on here u guys help keep the poor thing running. But on the other hand ur helping me rebuild my motor as of these past 4 weeks! Anyways my nieghbor is a huge neon enthusiest and when he first say my focus last year first thing he said was find a forum and here I am!
08-20-2009, 12:32 AM
I did a search on Ford Focus Forums. FF came up. I checked it out and liked it, so I registered... That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
08-20-2009, 12:38 AM
accident.... and i have regreted it ever since.
08-21-2009, 01:22 AM
Like most of you, I was considering purchasing a used Focus to replace my failing F-150, and figured the best people to talk about it with were the enthusiats, I googled "Ford Focus Forum" and FF was the 2nd site after Ford's own site. I noted there were some other results, and BRIEFLY looked at them, then came back to FF and have been here since.
